OK. We set up our Christmas tree in our living room today. I know, why so early you ask? Well, it’s been a tradition to decorate before Thanksgiving in our family for about 7 years now. We found this a lot easier because we always went away for Thanksgiving to see my parents. After a week away and then coming home to all the Christmas decorations already set up was truly magical. My kids love it especially when coming back from a warm, desert climate. We really do enjoy our temperate climate. First brisk fall air, first fall foliage, first snowy day, first tree budding, first flower bloom, first hot day.
But Christmas, that’s our favorite holiday season. Are you as excited as I am? Watching “Elf” on TV last week was just the beginning of so much more happy festivities to come.
So tell me, what are your holiday traditions? Do share…
